We haven’t seen a new Banksy out since his last rendition just before the London Olympics, until now that is! A freshly stencilled piece has appeared on the Los Angeles streets in conjunction with a cryptic posting on Banksy’s official website, showcasing the work to the rest of the world.
The simple but brilliant new street art work employs Banksy’s trademark tongue-in-cheek humour and depicts a young graffiti vandal throwing up flowers. The flowers are part of the physical habitat, making the piece site-specific and truly rooted in the street.
The caption on Banksy’s website is ‘Better Out Than In, October 2013’. There is speculation that this refers to a new project set to be unveiled in October. Unsurprisingly, there are no details yet from street art’s ultimate man of mystery, but we’ll be sure to keep you up to date as we hear more!
